Tires and Rims

Hey everyone. My rims on my 97 TJ were really rusted. But luckily only surface rust. I can not afford new ones so here is the progress. Wire brushed to get to bare metal. Then automotive bare metal primer. Then a second coat. Then first coat high gloss black. Then second coat. Not done yet but here are some befores and after for what I got. I used high gloss red for the center piece.

Ok finally finished them three days ago. Used tire shine on the tires and it started to make them look better. Took a long time to finish because I was sick, and coughing up stuff, but I tried. I will post the final pictures today.
